Bayard & Holmes
~ Piper Bayard
Subversion, subversion, subversion . . . When Americans are divided and allow ourselves to see our own countrymen as the “other,” we give our enemies, such as Russia, opportunities to tear our nation apart. When Americans say, “I disagree with you, but you are my brother, and that’s what matters most,” we stand strong against interlopers.
America’s enemies would encourage our internal divisions and self-hatred as a nation. In doing so, they don’t only prey on the haters among us. They prey upon well-meaning people who would work to solve our social problems.
These Americans Were Tricked Into Working for Russia. They Say They Had No Idea.
They probably didn’t.
Gads. Between the naivety and “cutting off your own nose to spite your face” syndrome we’re facing such difficulties.
Once again, failure of education system to really instruct in persuasive techniques for positive and negative uses, learn how vocabulary’s connotations and denotations are used to persuade, and practice critical thinking skills (which is much talked about but little practiced K-12 as it used to be)
